Although sometimes it gets bogged down in the details of drilling, The Hummingbird Project extracts enough entertainment value from an unpromising premise, greatly helped by Jesse Eisenberg finding the humanity in his hustler.
This has to go down as one of the nicest surprises of early summer - clever, ambitious and beautifully acted by Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgård, who surely gives one of the best performances of his career.
Part thriller, part family drama, part satirical commentary on the way that the pursuit of wealth is a cultural cancer that taints everything it touches, The Hummingbird Project is no less compelling for its odd mishmash of components.
It is so nice to see Eisenberg in a role that he can inhabit. While I thought he was OK as Lex Luthor in the recent "Justice League" themed films, it's been a long time since I've seen the "The Social Network" Eisenberg...
The result is mixed. To the good, this a story told with great attention to detail, and it's worth noting that the documentary style may lead you to think it's based on a real story... On the downside, it's underwhelming.
[The film] joins the recent raft of unusual, unusually engrossing business films such as The Big Short, The Founder and Joy...Salma Hayek plays the corporate boss like an ultra-cool Bond villain, keen to crush her competitors under her killer stilettos.
